At SigmaMD, we are committed to giving you the tools to make informed healthcare choices. When your clinician prescribes a medication, you have the power to decide where you'd like to get it filled. Let's explore the process of selecting your preferred pharmacy for prescriptions in the SigmaMD app.
Why It Matters
Choosing your pharmacy is more than just a convenience – it can also save you money. You have the freedom to select the most suitable and cost-effective option for each prescribed medication.
To initiate this workflow, kindly let your clinician know of your intention to select a pharmacy in the SigmaMD mobile app based on the available cash price options.
1. Get Notified: When your clinician prescribes medication, you'll receive a message and notification on the SigmaMD app. Simply tap to open the prescription list. You'll also find reminders on the home screen, medications health data screen, and from the prescriptions screen of visit details.
2. Pick Your Pharmacy: In the prescription list, you'll see the medications your clinician ordered. Here's where you take control. Choose a pharmacy for each medication. You'll find a list of available options based on your preferred address. If your address changes, update it from the Profile screen.
3. Compare Costs: Each pharmacy will provide estimated prices for your medications. These prices are meant to guide your decision. Please note that they're approximate and can vary. While we're working to expand this feature to nearby zip codes, for now, the prices displayed are based on your current address zip code.
4. Tailor Your Choices: One of the advantages of this feature is the flexibility to customize your selections for each medication. Feel free to distribute your medications among different pharmacies.
5. Finalize and Notify: Once you've chosen pharmacies for all your medications, save and send your selections to your clinician. They'll receive a notification to send your prescriptions to your chosen pharmacies. You'll be alerted when the process is complete.
In your healthcare journey, selecting the right pharmacy for each medication is pivotal. At SigmaMD, we prioritize giving you options to enhance your healthcare decision-making. It's important to note that the provided prices are only estimates and might vary. We encourage you to engage with both your clinician and pharmacist to make informed choices and ensure a holistic healthcare approach. Additionally, always remember to update the usage for any completed prescriptions.
